About the Author

Vicki Robin is a renowned innovator, writer, and speaker. In addition to coauthoring the bestselling Your Money or Your Life, Robin has been at the forefront of the sustainable living movement. She has received awards from Co-Op America and Sustainable Northwest and was profiled in Utne Magazine’s book Visionaries: People and Ideas to Change Your Life. She is also the author of Blessing the Hands That Feed Us: What Eating Closer to Home Can Teach Us About Food, Community and Our Place on Earth. She lives on Whidbey Island in Washington.

Joe Dominguez (1938-1997) was a successful financial analyst on Wall Street before retiring at the age of thirty-one by following the nine-step program he formulated for himself. He taught this formula for many years, and preserved it for future generations in Your Money or Your Life. From 1969 on, he was a full-time volunteer and donated all proceeds from his teaching to transformational projects.

Peter Adeney, better known as Mr. Money Mustache, is an influential financial blogger who retired financially independent shortly after turning thirty, and now writes about how to live a frugal life of leisure.

I read this book when it came out in the 1990's. It changed my perspective and changed the way I look at money. No, I am not financially independent but my life is definitely much richer and more authentic than it would have been had I not read this book. I bought the updated nook version as a refresher. It's just as helpful as the previous version with some updates. Given the economy and what got us into this mess, this book is a must read for everyone.

Really didn't like this book. A very innocent look at what money does to us and some simple ideas to modify your life to change that. I found the ideas to be way to basic and also i can't picture anyone following the steps

Many books about money implicitly assume that money is everything, but this book downplays money, buying and consuming, thoughtfully placing these things in a larger life context. The practical advice for saving and spending is excellent. Their method of forcing you to confront the individual life choices you are making by means of day-to-day spending decisions will likely be an eye-opener.

If you appreciated the themes in the first version but had issues getting past the pretty ridiculously high bond/savings account interest rates, this update will address those changes in our financial system and ways to still grow your capital. I recommend this to my fellow millenia who are seeking financial independence.

An excellent starting point to achieve better financial health.

This was one of the first of the "Financial Independence" books, promoting the idea of living below your means and saving towards the time when you no longer need to work. Awesome ideas, a classic.
